First I'd like to say hello to everyone. Second, I'm a newbie in here and I fear I may have already stepped on toes somewhere. I apologize ahead of time.
My question really concerns something I'm sure all Aikidoka would romanticize about at least to some extent. How would one go about becoming an uchi-deshi at say the hombu dojo? Failing that one of Ueshiba's own uchi-deshi's dojo's? Failing that (incredibly long winded: sorry
) one of K. Ueshiba's uchi-deshi? and so on. Bear in mind that I'm a total green horn and all of this is just a moment of pure escapism.
